Candidate May 2021 Tilgate & Furnace Green
Colin served as Tilgate’s borough councillor for twenty three years until 2016 and as county councillor for the former county division of Tilgate & Southgate East 2001-05. As such he is one of Crawley’s most experienced councillors of any party. He is well known in Tilgate and Furnace Green and is often asked by residents to stand for election again.
About the 2021 county council elections Colin says:
‘ West Sussex County Council has been Conservative dominated for decades and there’s a lot of evidence to show they are doing a poor job. Resident’s bad experiences of services and critical inspection reports paint a very worrying picture of a county council in crisis. I believe this unhealthy state of affairs must end. That is why I am standing for election to West Sussex County Council. I want to ensure the people of Tilgate and Furnace Green have the choice of a proven champion for local residents who can work with others to improve West Sussex County Council. I am:
* committed to providing high quality public services
* not afraid to challenge people in authority on behalf of residents
* keen to put my local government experience at people’s service at county level ‘
